You can make your own pastry flour by mixing 50/50 AP flour and cake flour (3/8 AP + 5/8 cake flour if you want to be more precise).

Also, the name of your business seems to suggest your...
If it is a licensed figure you can charge the customer without any problems...it would be no different than buying the figure by itself and selling it someone else.
This is still infringement if you created copies of the characters yourself without permission. Trying to be creative to circumvent the law can make things worse since it shows you were aware of the law and actively tried to get around it.If you buy licensed characters you can legally include them on the cake or resell them without permission.
It is possible. As MsGF mentioned the biggest concern in an open shared space is airborne cross contamination. If you can confirm that no one will be using the kitchen for 24 hours before you bake gluten-free you should be OK as long as you be sure to sanitize all surfaces and equipment.
